Bij Deez Tech hebben ze nog een review in elkaar gezet rondom een Athlon 500MHz systeem. Ook al is dit de traagste Athlon ooit, hij verschilt soms niet veel van een Pentium 3 600:
Overall, the Athlon 500 is a very impressive processor. Even though it's been clocked at a considerable less clock rate, it still kept up and even beat Intel's offerings on a few tests. You are probably thinking that it probably would had been a lot more fair if I had actually compared the Athlon against identically clocked Intel parts. But even in those seemingly unfair conditions the Athlon STILL looked good. The only negative I see with the Athlon is the difficulty overclocking one of them, and the fact that since it's such a new processor, we haven't seen any really good motherboard support from the manufacturers. I used the SD-11 to run this Athlon, and lemme tell you, I was NOT impressed. But that's a whole different story. Take care!
